"Katy possesses all of the qualities that anyone should look for in an agent! Not only is she a smart and savvy negotiator who is thorough and tenacious, but she has an incredible knowledge of the Silicon Valley market and the connections to be the first in line to see new properties. Her off market network and great relationships with agents on the other side is like no other. I will forever be grateful to her for helping me find the absolute perfect home that checked every single box in what I was looking for! "

"Katy was invaluable in helping us purchase our home. She is a can-do person and uses her extensive professional network to get things done. Her expertise and knowledge were evident, and she always responded quickly to my calls and emails. For example, when I had some questions, we were on the phone with the title company right away and within an hour I had all my questions answered. She also kept in touch with us post-sale, making sure that we had settled in and further offering to help in any way. It is obvious why Katy is one of the top realtors in the area." - Antonia

★★★★★
"Katy was a tremendous resource in helping to find the right house for us in Menlo Park. Due to her deep relationships within the Menlo Park and Atherton, we had access to MANY properties on and off market which gave us great flexibility in terms of choice. We also wanted to sell our house before we bought a new house which complicated the transaction. Within two weeks of selling our house, we were under contract for a lovely newly built home in a great location. Needless to say, we are very happy with the professional way in which we were handled and the tireless, patient way in which Katy interacted with us!" - Ivy

"I have worked with serval realtors over the years but none as outstanding as Katy Thielke Strasser. She has an extensive knowledge of Penninsula and South Bay. She has lived in the area her whole life and is very connected to the community. She has the ability to make you feel as though you are her only client. Any questions we had were answered immediately. She was so responsive to our every need. She exceeded all our our expectations. She was an absolute joy to work with! Katy is now our agent for life."

★★★★★
"As buyers from overseas we contacted a number of different agents to help with our property search, but Katy was by far the most proactive and supportive during the process. She dedicated time to review our shortlist before making our visit, and when finally arriving to the area she had lined up some very promising homes for us to view. There were a number of specific requirements for the home and she took these on board, using her network to help arrange the appropriate surveys. Overall I would recommend Katy to support anyone looking for a home in the Atherton/Portola Valley/Los Altos Hills area." - Matthew

★★★★★
"One would be hard pressed to find someone who is more professional, supportive, and is the very definition of "get it done." while being more than 100% attentive to her client's needs, wants, budget, all while being able to gently expose them to what may unexpectedly go beyond what the client might have anticipated or realised was available or possible."

★★★★★
"My family and I have known Katy for almost 15 years, and we definitely vouch for Katy as our go to agent/broker. Katy was our agent when we decided to buy our first home in Santa Clara County - Palo Alto in 2002, and we are very grateful she gave us this opportunity to own our first home! Also, after our family moved out of the state she was extremely helpful in preparing our home for rent. Over the years she helped us with not only securing rental clients, but also with property advice, upgrades, remodel management, all while our family has been living out of state. Katy has helped us in so many ways. She is extremely patient and persistent when any issues need to be solved. I would definitely recommend Katy!"

★★★★★

My partner and I have had the opportunity and pleasure to work with Katy and she was 100% committed to meeting our needs and working closely with us to generate outstanding results! Thank you, Katy!"

About Katy

Today’s Bay Area real estate market continues to be upbeat, and depending on whether you’re selling or buying, that works to your advantage and also present challenges. In either case, Katy has the experience, local knowledge and negotiating skills to secure winning real estate outcomes. Here’s how one client put it:

“Katy really makes it happen. She stands above the competition with her professionalism, attention to detail, excellent negotiation skills, and immediate response time….”

This is not an isolated comment. Katy’s list of well-served clients extends across her 18-year career in real estate in Bay Area locations from Mountain View to Burlingame, covering transactions from modest to luxury properties. With the support of premier real estate brokerage, Compass, the dominant regional firm, sellers and buyers alike benefit from her area knowledge, marketing skills, and negotiating diligence. Other client comments back up the point:

“…Katy has a wealth of knowledge on all things about each community up and down the Peninsula and here in Silicon Valley.”

“Katy is patient, dedicated and won’t settle for anything less the perfect fit client families.”

Achieving this level of client-focused success requires more than “the usual” real estate skills. Sensitivity to market conditions and trends is an ongoing challenge, and Katy keeps her finger on the pulse of the business. Clients selling their properties appreciate her candor in advising strategic pricing that produces wide market interest and often multiple purchase offers to achieve clients’ maximum returns.

Katy brings a full-service, beginning-to-end process to a property listing. Working with a proven team of contractors and service providers, homes are prepped for sale to make the best possible impression on potential buyers.

Katy's participation in the “Top Agency Network” (TAN) adds another resource to her professional services. TAN brings together the top 10 percent of real estate sales producers in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties in an online network that shares “early alerts” of property listings. These include high-end, “off-market” (private sale) properties, ensuring that her client listings gain maximum visibility.

Katy’s skills have been honed from a platform of education at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, experience with consulting and employment connections with leading Silicon Valley firms, event management, and volunteer work with groups including Bing Nursery School at Stanford, Lucile Packard Children’s’ Hospital, Sacred Heart School, and GLOW Scholar. Born and raised in Los Altos, she resides in Menlo Park with her husband and two children.
